For ages, China has been a world-leader in manufacturing and a tail-end-charlie in adoption of GNU/Linux on the desktop. Oh, there were initiatives from government but they didn’t seem to bite. All that’s changed. Google sees a trend in interest for “Ubuntu” in searches from China and so does StatCounter.
Will GNU/Linux take off in China like other goods? Will China catch up in one year or two? This is yet another reason to name 2015 The Year Of The GNU/Linux Desktop. I like it.
